The 2018 GMC Acadia is offered in four trims SL, SLE, SLT, and 2018 GMC Acadia Denali. The 2018 Acadia SL model looks like a big part until you realize it’s a custom model and you’ll have to wait for it to be built. There are two levels of medium size SLE trim: The SLE-1 is only a small upgrade over SL (but you’ll actually find it at a merchant), while the SLE-2 offers a significant level of upgrades. A well-equipped SLT trim is the next step, and it is also divided between SLT-1 and SLT-2 levels. The Denali trim around the series with several exclusive high-end features.
2018 GMC Acadia Interior
The overall interior GMC Acadia 2018 design is simple with easy user controls. It feels more like a car from behind the wheel compared to some of its competitors, but outer visibility is about the same. Shorter drivers will appreciate its relatively low climbing height. Inside, the parking button is outside center. The quartz panels at the front dart do not control inside or outside. Other inner areas look and feel good.
The 2018 GMC Acadia model uses the same overall layout as the GMC Sierra bakkie, which is good. A minimum number of buttons and buttons make it easy to find things. But it is not a lot of luxury. A low step-in height makes it very easy to get in and out. An average size adult will decrease slightly when he enters, so there is no climb in the Acadia. The doors are light and they open wide. But we are not designers of the door handle because the handles can easily pinch fingers.
2018 GMC Acadia Features
The touchscreen technology interface used in Acadia is one of the easier systems that can be used at a glance. It benefits the features you use the most, which is a plus. Bluetooth connectivity is fast and easy. Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available. Bluetooth connectivity is simple and fast. The standard GM touchscreen interface is generally good, thanks to simple menus and large, easy-to-read icons. There are buttons for tuning and volume, which is always a plus, the rest of the controls are minimized to reduce litter.
2018 GMC Acadia Engine
The GMC Acadia comes with a choice of two different engines, a fuel-efficient 2.5L-4 cylinder that makes 193 horsepower or a stronger 3.6L V6 with 310 horsepower. Motors drive power on the front wheels or all four wheels through a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Even the All-Wheel Drive-V6 accelerated version drives 25 mpg on the freeway, while 4-cylinder versions are remarkably good with a 21 mpg city rating for both front and four-wheel-drive versions. The 3.6-liter V6 is now available on SLE-1 AWD models. Last year’s All Terrain package removed the third-row seat, but it can now be ordered with the third row intact.
